Mentoring at the NNA
We're really proud of our mentoring scheme which involves monthly Zoom calls with NNA mentor leader - Cora Weekes.
The monthly sessions, which will start each January, are primarily for recent graduates and students in their final year of a nutritional therapy diploma to help set up in practice, build up confidence, hone their clinical skills and address any subjects or questions that may come up. Nutritional Advisor graduates may attend the 1st 3 sessions. These sessions occur on a Wednesday evening between 7.30pm - 8.30pm.
We are looking to support and encourage each other, while addressing the following:
- Setting up in practice – legalities and priorities
· Client interaction
· Functional testing
· Supplements in practice
· Jobs for nutritional therapists (or case studies)
· Consultation formats, questionnaires, timings
· Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database – how to use (or case studies/guest speaker)
· Digital Marketing
· Functional testing in practice (examples) or case studies
The mentoring costs £85 for the whole package of 10 sessions and you must be an NNA member to join. Nutritional Advisors may join for the first 3 sessions at a cost of £30.
If mentoring is something you think you’d find useful, please get in touch with Cora directly. email@example.com
Recent testimonial from a member of the most recent mentoring group:- I’m so glad I signed up to it! It has been brilliant! Cora is very approachable, knowledgable and supportive. The sessions were well planned and we always received notes and recordings after, which is helpful if you wanted to go over something again or if you missed a session. There was always plenty of time at the end to discuss any cases or address any questions we had. Cora always responded to any questions we had in between the sessions too. I would highly recommend Cora and the mentoring sessions! I’m so sad they have come to an end! I will miss the support the group sessions provided.
We are awarding 1 CPD point per session.
